What are Concrete slabs?


Concrete slabs are a typical building element that is used as a structural component. A concrete slab is a thick, flat and horizontal concrete layer, which can be utilized as a floor or even as a roof. Concrete slabs are used in some residential structures to support the foundation, or directly on the earth.



Our Concrete Slab Installation Process


Concrete installation can be difficult when one does not have the necessary expertise. Port St. Lucie Concrete Contractors follows the strict procedure for installing concrete slabs.


Safety is the top priority for any concrete project. When a project begins we ensure that we be equipped with the proper safety equipment. Eye protection and long sleeves, or long pants and rubber gloves are all necessary. All these protect us from concrete splashes, that could affect our overall health and well-being.


As with the process, we strictly follow below steps:


Step 1: Preparation on-site

Whatever small or large the project no matter how big or small, we will adhere to the same procedure. Cleaning the area is the initial stage in all of our projects. We tidy up and eliminate debris so that we can begin from scratch. We ensure that all items are in good condition to be used during the preparation phase. We plan for the delivery of the materials prior to the time we begin the actual work. This allows us to complete the work on time.


Step 2: Build Concrete Forms and reinforce Concrete Slabs with Steel

After the area is cleaned and is ready to be installed Wire mesh is used to install concrete forms. Concrete forms are strong barriers that help keep the concrete mix in place. Concrete forms force concrete to adopt a certain shape or design. Concrete reinforced by rebar can be used for bigger structures. This makes concrete stronger surfaces.


Step 3: Mixing Concrete Mix

Concrete trucks make things much easier. Concrete materials can be mixed more efficiently with a concrete truck. Sometimes, we do manual mixing. Most of the time, however we make use of a concrete mixer.


Step 4: Pouring Concrete

After we have finished mixing concrete, we immediately pour the concrete slab into our molds. It is important to be careful when pouring this concrete so that there are not excessive air pockets while pouring concrete. Air pockets are caused by too little mortar in the gaps around the aggregate. When we pour concrete, we make sure we evenly distribute the mix across the form, never leaving a single spot.
